Welcome to Kaawa Loa Plantation, Big Island, Kona Coast

Bed and Breakfast guest house for your vacation on the Big Island,
located at the Kona Coffee Belt, Kona Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

Ka’awa Loa Plantation is a Guesthouse and start-up coffee farm located in the heart of the Kona Coffee Belt on the island of Hawai’i. The 5-acre estate is nestled in tropical surroundings at the elevation of 1,200 feet directly above Kealakekua Bay. Our venue offers a wonderful spot to base your Big Island adventures.

In Hawaiian, Ka’awa is a sacred root used in ceremonies. Ka’awa Loa translates literally as “The Long Roots”. This is the name held by our neighboring apua’a (land divide), where the people from makai (the sea) and the people from mauka (the mountains) came together in the middle to trade, socialize, rest, and share their Aloha. Ka’awa Loa Plantation proudly continues this tradition today.

Area activities include swimming and snorkeling in the pristine waters of the Pacific, ocean kayaking, hiking, horseback riding, touring coffee farms, and shopping in several eclectic local shops. Historic St. Benedict’s Painted Church and sacred Pu’uhonua O Honaunau, the Place of Refuge, are just a short drive away.
